Huntin' for Tadpoles!

What a busy weekend we've had!!! Saturday we gave my niece a baby shower (more about that later). My great niece and nephew, Patrick and Ashley, came down for the shower and spent the night with me. Then, on Sunday, we went to church and to my mom's for mother's day dinner. After a wonderful meal, Patrick and Ashley decided to go down to the creek to hunt for tadpoles. Sure did bring back childhood memories! Sitting on the edge of the creek, trying to catch those quick little rascals before they buried themselves out of sight! Patrick finally caught about 10. Poor Ashley didn't have any luck, other than getting wet and muddy! Wet and muddy feet, legs and hands, multiple mosquito bites (mosquitos love the muggy wetness of the creek) and lots and lots of fun! Boy, you wouldn't believe the conversations with a 6 and 8 year old at the creek!!! All in all, a wonderful, fun, interesting and informative Mother's Day! I love these kids!!!
